Pasta Bake

Pasta Bake is the food beloved of students everywhere, easy to make, cheap, happy to sit around for a bit. It’s also got a reputation for not being very nice but it’s one of my favourite comfort foods. The leftovers are also really good for lunch the next dayIMG_3184Over time my pasta bake has become vegetarian and lasagne like, I could actually just make it with lasagne sheets but this feels easier…

First, I cook the pasta and start the tomato sauce. 2 cans of tomatoes blended and added to a saucepan with some balsamic vinegar, olive oil and seasoning. Then cooked over a medium heat until thickened.

Then I chop and sauté the vegetables, this one had an aubergine, a large courgette, two peppers and two onions, once they’re cooked, I add them to the sauce and then I make white sauce and add sautéed mushrooms to it.

When all of the component parts are cooked, I layer the tomato sauce, pasta and white sauce, covering the top with mozzarella and cheddarIMG_3182Bake and serve with a green salad or just on it’s own…IMG_3183
